    What do you think about this product?

    Have questions about this product?

    Does a bear **** in the woods??

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: 11.5
    • Height: 6'0"
    • Weight: 195lbs




    Should you buy these??

    The answer to both questions is yes! I like these boots a lot. They are very lightweight, comfortable, and giving great support. I have put them to the test on some long days with heavy packs. Out of the box, I took them on a 6 mile, one way, backpacking trip and had no issues with blisters or discomfort. On the second or third trip with them, I had only one issue, and that was the ball of my feet starting to hurt after long hours hiking in them. I think this was a my problem and not an issue with the boot though. I have since put some new soles in them and I have not had any issues since. I have taken them on some serious rock scrambles and screes without any issues at all as well. I also love that they semi-auto crampon compatible too! I had no issues fitting them with my crampons.

    I would certainly recommend these boots. I did have to go up a half size from my normal boot size, though my foot is wider than average.

    Feel free to reach out directly with any questions at all!

    Nice light boots

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: True to size
    • Height: 5'5"
    • Weight: 150lbs

    I did return these because of fit. They are more narrow in the footbed/toes than the Scarpa boots. This could be good or bad for you, it's bad for me. They also seem to have a slightly raised heel which I notice-- I run in altra's though so again, you may not notice this.
